U.S. Urges Return to Negotiations After Elections

The U.S. State Department expressed hope Tuesday that once Israeli elections are over the new government will be able to renew the peace process. 

"We are very clear in that we hope and expect that once the new government is created we can promote direct peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians, because that is the only way to move forward," said ministry spokeswoman, Victoria Nuland.
